Recent developments of low-cost, low-power, multifunctional wireless sensors have enabled the fast growth of Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) applications, which include security, military, agriculture, automation, environmental and habitat monitoring. WSNs consist of numerous small inexpensive battery powered sensors; each sensor has the capability to process and store the sensor data. A combination of the dense deployment of numerous smart sensors, AI techniques, and intelligent agents can provide continuous real-time monitoring that is precise, accurate, reliable, and inexpensive.

This symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on different aspects of wireless sensor networks and software agent technology in an effort to highlight the state-of-the-art and discuss the challenges and opportunities to explore new research directions. We strongly welcome submissions that include results which advance the state of the art relating to the theme of the symposium.

The main topics to be addressed include (but not limited to):

* Adaptive agents in AWSN
* Agent security and trust in AWSNs
* Agent-based architectures for AWSNs
* Agents design issues dealing with reliability, efficiency, and fault tolerance
* Database management systems for AWSNs
* Distributed management systems for AWSNs
* Intelligent data fusion and aggregation
* Intelligent query and data dissemination
* Intelligent systems for AWSNs
* Learning agents in AWSN
* Mobile agents in AWSNs
* Monitoring agents in AWSNs
* Peer-to-Peer systems for AWSNs
* Power management and energy-efficient protocols
* Routing protocols for AWSNs
* Safe transmissions of data in AWSNs
* Self-organization of AWSNs
* Smart energy-efficient routing protocols

**** Publication ****

Only original papers will be considered that have neither been published nor submitted for publication elsewhere, including web publication. All submissions will be handled electronically. The length of the paper is limited to 6 pages. All papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.

Accepted papers will be printed in the conference proceedings published by Elsevier Science in the open-access Procedia Computer Science series (on-line and CD). Procedia Computer Sciences is hosted on and on Elsevier content platform ScienceDirect (, and will be freely available worldwide. All papers in Procedia will also be indexed by Scopus ( and Engineering Village (Ei) (

This includes EI Compendex ( The papers will contain linked references, XML versions and citable DOI numbers. You will be able to provide a hyperlink to all delegates and direct your conference website visitors to your proceedings.

Authors of high quality papers presented in the symposium will be invited to submit extended version of their papers for publication in international journal special issues.

We will also work towards indexing IST-AWSN program in DBLP database.
